Welcome to the NursingCAS Dispatch – a monthly newsletter intended to keep you up to date with current happenings at NursingCAS. The newsletter will feature:
Happy 2019! The NursingCAS team is prepared for the busy months ahead to support you and your applicants. Remember to add your upcoming recruitment events this year to the applicant events calendar.
The 2019 – 2020 NursingCAS Cycle will open on August 15, 2019. Consistent with last year, there will be a short crossover period when both application cycles will be open simultaneously.
The current, 2018 – 2019 NursingCAS Cycle will remain open through mid-September, and processing will be extended as well. This solution enables NursingCAS to eliminate downtime between cycles while maintaining an annual schedule for system updates, data-reporting, and operational efficiency. The final deadline to post on the 2018 – 2019 Cycle is September 15, if you have already added any programs with deadlines beyond that date please login to the CAS Configuration Portal and adjust them accordingly
More details and FAQs will be released by April. In the meantime, please reach out to the NursingCAS team with any questions.
